child abuse and stereotyping are things that I don't want to see in a movie. as well as it being to long, it has scenes which are overly dramatical such as a boy being chased through the streets Beijing and beaten up for throwing mud. is this what happens in china? 12 year old's act like thugs and gang up on people? although there were some scenes that were humorous and interesting. they were overshadowed by over-dramatics.
